Last week meant weaving on two, four or eight-shafts in either Daryl Lancaster’s Advanced Inkle Weaving Techniques (two) or Nancy Adams’ Honeycomb and Waffle Weave (four and eight). In the inkle class, intricate designs included name drafts, pick-ups and turned Krokbragd.
The inkle weavers are proudly showing their looms with all the special techniques they learned in class with instructor, Daryl Lancaster. You can read more about Daryl, her travels and the classes she teaches on her own blog, www.weaversew.com.
To create honeycomb or waffle weave, a four- or eight-harness loom is in order and students in Nancy Adams’ class made one, two or six (!) pieces including scarves, pillow covers, towels and table runners in this wonderful textural weave.
Not two, four or eight, but fourteen smiles in these two classes!
We are looking forward to more weaving, willow chairs, knitting, handmade boxes and woodcarving as we head into October and as our 39th season comes to a close. The past few months have gone by quickly. It is always a bittersweet time as we near the final class, but that just means we’ll be thinking of the next year!Share Sievers with Friends...
